    I have a Pekin, 2 Khakis, and a Mallard...They all LOVE catfood. They stay at the pond, but they come to the house each day for a snack(Green Peas or Catfood)
    How much Catfood is okay?
    Should I feed them something else?
    Does anyone else feed theirs Catfood?
    P.M. me please! [​IMG]

    I occasionally add a small bit of cat kibble to the regular balanced ration, especially when ducks are molting or in winter. I also sometimes add ground flax seed or sprouted wheat seeds.

    They need a balanced feed as a basis for their diet, then supplements can be added as needed.
